Its a tough call. Leases are good, and car is at invoice price. Hard to argue knowing the LCI wont be a great deal in 2014.

Did you take delivery yet? Can you wait until September? Thats when its out?

TOUGH call... exterior wise, can it get better?
I already bit the bullet and ordered one before the year end. They will deliver it by 02/25. I love the current design and I am planning to do some mods myself. However, I also would not mind some extra power (although it is mostly useless in the US due to "smart and very logical" speed limits), the possible digital gauges and LED lights. But then again, I have an amazing lease deal that was very hard to ignore.
The fact that some of the software issues are ironed out by now is nice and also we have more parts to mod the car.
In 39 months, they'll probably have the the all new 5 Series that I am planning to get or maybe a 6 GC.
